Rumored Mac Pro and MacBook Pro Plan

Please see the Mac Pro Update Rumored to Be Imminent and Rumored Mac Pro New Features from prior days.

In addition to the rumored and long overdue Mac Pro update, we might also see MacBook Air and MacBook Pro updates, and maybe even the MacMini.

If there is a new MacBook Pro, I’ll be reviewing that also, and maybe even a MacBook Air, if it has the features I need when I travel (minimum 8GB memory, non-sluggish CPU).

I’ll be discussing my viewpoint on what the new hardware really means as a practical matter for photographers and videographers.

Availability is another matter. Base configurations with the slowest CPU might be immediately available, but I prefer to test the faster configurations, and those might take a week or even several weeks to arrive for testing given Apple’s past performance (for example, Apple Stores almost never carry anything but the lower grade models).

I also intend to compare the new Mac Pro to my existing 6-core and 12-core 3.33 GHz Mac Pros, to yield a realistic view of what can be expected with variety of software. See my in-depth review of the 2010-2012 Mac Pro Westmere.
